Prep Time: 40-50mins

Cook Time: 35mins

Total Time: ±1h20mins

 

Cashew ‘Cheese’

  • ½ cup unsalted Cashews
  • ½ cup unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 2 Garlic cloves (or 1 tsp garlic pulp)
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • Fresh Oregano to taste (I used 1/3 cup)

Tomato Sauce

  • ½ Onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 8 oz of organic diced tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp tomato Concentrate
  • 2 Garlic cloves
  • ½ cup of Basil, chopped
  • Black pepper, to taste (1 tsp should be fine)
  • ½ tsp Salt (optional, because of tomato concentrate)

‘Faux’ Pasta

  • 2 medium Zucchini

Topping suggestions

  • Chili flakes
  • Basil  

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven at 375 farenheit or 190 celcius
  2. For the Cashew Cheese, soak the cashews in warm water for 20 minutes, then blend all ingredients in your food processor
  3. For the tomato sauce, simply blend all ingredients in your food processor.
  4. For the pasta portion, slice the zucchini into very thin pasta-like-portions (1/8 inch) , or even easier, you can take your wide peeling blade instead (used for the zucchini tagliatelles recipe) to make evenly thin slices
  5. Once you’ve prepped all elements, in your casserole: lay down some tomato sauce to start, then add a layer of zucchini
  6. Then on top of the zucchini spread 2 tbsp of tomato sauce, followed by 1 tbsp of cashew cheese
  7. Repeat until you’ve finished using all 3 elements of the lasagna
  8. Add some chopped basil and chili flakes if you’d like
  9. Bake for ±30 mins until zucchini is cooked and the top layer is of a light golden brown
